GJX Hosting's Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)

GJX Hosting’s Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP") is provided to give our customers and users a clear understanding of what GJX Hosting expects of them while using our service. All users of GJX Hosting’s Web Hosting services must comply with this AUP and our TOS (Terms of Service).

Use of GJX Hosting Service constitutes acceptance and agreement to GJX Hosting’s AUP as well as GJX Hosting’s TOS (Terms of Service)

Even though we support uncensored flow of information and ideas over the Internet and do not monitor subscriber activity under normal conditions, we do require that all sites meet certain minimum criteria in terms of their content. For example, we do not allow SPAM, pornography, warez, sites engaged in illegal activity or racial hatred to name a few. In the same manner, we do not exercise editorial control over the content of any web site, e-mail transmission or other material created or accessible over or through the services.

However, in accordance with our TOS, we may remove any materials that, in our sole discretion, may be illegal, may subject us to liability, or which may violate this AUP. GJX Hosting may cooperate with legal authorities and/or third parties in the investigation of any suspected or alleged crime or civil wrongdoing. Your violation of this AUP may result in the suspension or immediate termination of either your GJX Hosting account or other actions as detailed below WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE.

While GJX Hosting is firmly committed to the principles of free speech, certain activities that may be damaging to the resources of both the GJX Hosting and the Internet and cannot be permitted under the guise of free speech. The resources of the GJX Hosting and the Internet are limited, and abuse of these resources by one user has a negative impact on the entire community.

We routinely monitor the resource usage of accounts for measurements of system utilization and the preparation of billing records. No single account may consume more than 1% of the total server resources in any one 24 hour cycle. This applies specifically to CPU usage and hard drive access. Should an account exceed these parameters, special arrangements need to be made and additional costs may apply. We will advise you if we become aware of inappropriate use of our service.

You may not use your site to publish material, which GJX Hosting determines, in its sole discretion, to be unlawful, indecent or objectionable. For purposes of this policy, "material" refers to all forms of communications including narrative descriptions, pornography (including photographs, illustrations, images, drawings, logos), executable programs, video recordings, and audio recordings.

You may not use your site for sending unsolicited bulk e-mail (SPAM) or unsolicited commercial Email.

If a GJX Hosting account is used to violate the Acceptable Use Policy or our TOS, we reserve the right to terminate your service without notice. We prefer to advise customers of inappropriate behavior and any necessary corrective action, however, flagrant violations of the AUP will result in immediate termination of service. Our failure to enforce this policy, for whatever reason, shall not be construed as a waiver of our right to do so at any time.
